Dixie’s family often referred to her as “The Old Lady Who Lived in the Shoe” because she always cared for the children around her. She was a loving, and caring mother, grandma, friend, and sister. Dixie always welcomed anyone who entered her door, often allowing them to lay their head down in a safe place and have a meal at her table. She never asked questions...she only provided love. Dixie's laugh will always be remembered.
Dixie was a Native American of the of the Deer Clain of the Euchee (Yuchi) Tribe, who settled in the Polecat Ceremonial Grounds.
